The hotel is a block from the entrance to Orient Village off the main road to Grand Case near Where we are staying at the residence shamrock. Noticed the sign by the road offering a breakfast buffet. We have wanted to check this hotel out so away for morning chow and adventure we went. The breakfast is served under a... More

Went back again for two weeks.Will be back again next year. Laid back retreat was my previous review of this hotel. Not much changed. I can add a few tips though. This hotel is more like renting a villa or cottage than a traditional north american style hotel or highrise. Quiet and privacy on your own patio with great views... More

The rooms are a bit dated but very clean. (Don't rely on using the sofa bed for comfortable sleeping but the bed is very comfortable) The setting is beautiful and it is very close to the beach. The staff members are really professional and helpful. There is a restaurant on site for evening meals. I would definitely go back. It... More

We have stayed many times at La Plantation, most recently for two weeks in April 2015. If you are looking for a 5-star luxury resort, this is not it, but it has a lot going for it a reasonable prices. Positives: • large, pleasant rooms with kitchenettes, • upper-level rooms (where we usually stay) with wonderful views of Orient Bay... More

Our family has been traveling to St. Martin and staying at the Hotel La Plantation now for over 10 years---we LOVE it here! Just a short walk to the magnificent 2 mile long Orient Beach, we wander down to a full breakfast beside the swimming pool after a lovely and long 9 hours of sleep, then gather our towels and...

This was a very nice, clean and large room. We did have a concern with having to lock ourselves in with a key and made sure we knew where the key was if we had to get out in a hurry. If you were unfortunate enough to get locked in the room without a key, there would be no way... More

You are on the French side and thus prepare to adapt a little. Bring converter, dictionary if needed and patience. The setting is old, colonial and rooms/suites updated nicely. Well equipped and good mix of old (wood) and new (bathrooms). I would not go as far as the brochure indicates as "one of the best in the Caribbean". It certainly... More

To begin with, this is a very nice Hotel: quite old-fashioned, almost "quaint" rooms but very spacious. Food is terrific: 3-course Table D'Hote menu for about $33 is highly recommended. Staff were great: very friendly and helpful. BUT A WORD OF ADVICE: when you settle your account, do so in Euros, not US Dollars. They present the bill to you... More

We loved our stay, first time in St Martin NOT on a cruise excursion. The property is situated in a wonderful area, very close to Orient Beach (free chairs), Many restaurants within walking distance, and one on site. Car rental office right in lobby so very handy. Breakfast was simple but filling, and no different than what we would have... More

I would have given La Plantation 5.0 but for a few shortcomings - its really 4.5/5.0 The villa (No 902) was on the upper level - spacious and roomy - had everything we needed although a sofa and comfy chair would have been appreciated. The little orange/brown and white kitten came to see us every day and it was so... More
